Day 2 of the Card Show

I made the drive to Raleigh for the second time this weekend for the card show. I met up with Pete from Dropped 3rd Strike and hung out for a while. Here are some of the things I picked up today.A nice Brandon Snyder Bowman Sterling Auto. I really like Snyder and have been following him since we met him at a Winston-Salem Warthogs vs. Frederick Keys game. He was nice enough to give Christopher a ball out of his equipment bag and sign it for him. I really hope he makes it to the majors and has a successful career.

I got 3 more 1970 Topps cards for my set. After my success yesterday, I think Im going to take it easy for about 5 minutes on set building. Maybe do a 'breather set' like 1998 topps. Something easy.
Finally, I got my first tobacco card! A 1909-1911 T-206 James B. Jackson. I saw Baltimore and had to grab it! Pretty dang sweet. It is an Old Mill, which was cool since I just busted the 2009 206 box.

I think this is a pretty cool card. Its fitting that a Baltimore Oriole was my first tobacco card. Awesome huh?
